Govindji Temple - Vrindavan

According to the great Sri Radhanath Swamy, "The Govindji Temple is the most spectacular piece of religious architecture I have ever seen". The temple was built Maharaja Man Singh, a general of Emperor Akbar's army as well as the nephew of Jodha Bai. He was a disciple of Raghunatha Bhatta Goswami. The temple is considered to be one of the best looking temples of North India. The original structure was a huge 7- storey building with a Govindaji idol made of gold, silver and marble. The ceiling of the Garbagriha or main hall is decorated with a heavy, carved lotus which was made at a cost of a few million rupees. Thousands of people worked on this temple for 5 long years and Emperor Akbar himself contributed the red sandstone for this temple. During the 16th century time when the place was ruled by Aurangzeb, this temple was plundered and left to only 3 storeys. It is said the floor of the temple started shaking and the men of Aurangzeb ran away terrified. The idol of Govindaji is now placed in a separate temple behind the main temple whereas the main Govindaji idol is worshipped in Jaipur.
This temple, constructed by Raja Man Singh in the sixteenth century, is one of the most important religious places in Vrindavan. This is one place you can't miss in Vrindavan.
